Mom's RV Spot

2 sites · RVs1 acre · Las Vegas, NV
Welcoming camp experience in the Las Vegas area. Private RV spot tucked away on a large lot in a quiet neighborhood, yet only 15 minutes to the downtown Fremont Street Experience, and about 25 minutes to the large strip properties like Caesars Palace and MGM. Las Vegas has a lot to offer, but we have you covered with the RV spot. We are in the NW valley with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. When the sun goes down over the Spring Mountains and Mount Charleston beautiful colors illuminate evening clouds. We are in somewhat of a rural area, so you might see bats in the evening, and bunnies in the morning. We have even seen coyote, owl, and of course lots of geese flying between golf courses in the morning during many months of the year. We are away from the city lights, so nighttime can be quite dark, but the moon can be a spectacular site in the night sky. Red Rock Canyon is 16 miles away. Many of our guests enjoy the scenic beauty or climbing opportunities in Red Rock. Nevada's newest state park, Ice Age Fossils State Park, is just a few miles away and offers a glimpse into prehistoric time in the region. If you enjoy ziplining then check out Slotzilla at Fremont Street or on the Las Vegas strip at the LINQ. Our Hipcamp comes equipped with water, electrical service (both 30amp and 50amp), and a sewer connection.

Garden Oasis in the Heart of Vegas

1 site · RV2 acres · Las Vegas, NV
Our property sits on 2 acres in the heart of Las Vegas. It is one of the original homesteads of Las Vegas which we are trying to take back to a homestead. The original owners of the property played a huge hand in the building of Vegas. As we have cleaned up the property treasures of a 100 years ago have been found all over the property. On the property you will find a huge garden out front that you are welcome to pick from. We also have over 50 trees on the property you are welcome to walk around and enjoy. If you find yourself in the duck coop or the chicken coop and find an egg you are welcome to enjoy it. Feel free to enjoy the pool, bbq and outside bathroom which has a shower, and full size washer and dryers. We are a smoke/drug free site please be respectful of this rule and violators will be asked to leave without refund. Because we are a "working hobby farm" you will see some weeds and you may even see a project or two we are working on, feel free to join in but please be understanding that in order for us to improve things it will get little messy and can take time to complete. Also, please check the weather before you book, Vegas if very hot during the summer months, if your rig doesn't have AC you will not be comfortable as night temps can be easily over 100.

3MOONS Project

5 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents3 acres · Tecopa, CA
We are in the Mojave Desert, 27 miles east of Tecopa, California off the Old Spanish Trail. We are halfway between the bright lights of Las Vegas and the expansive starry skies of Death Valley. A few generations ago roamed here the Shoshone Tribe. At the same time, pioneers from the East traveled on the Old Spanish Trail which crosses our own land. Now, a few of us who enjoy the great space and silence are creating with the earth. We build comfortably, off-grid, with the challenges of unpredictable weather and extreme climate. Some of us, like me, guided by a passion to create space in and with this earth, build with earthbags and bottles. In Spring, 2015, we began building. Slowly, thanks to like-minded, enthusiastic helpers, we grow! We enjoy sharing this space with others, like You?! who also love the hum of our planet Earth, its critters, and being in touch with our own selves. Sleep in this unique, magical place, wrapped in the arms of the Earth. Bring in, take out! BE responsible for yourselves and for our fragile desert!

The best camping near Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area guide

Overview

About

Located less than 20 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip, the conservation area spans nearly 200,000 acres in the Mojave Desert. Known for its namesake red-banded sandstone cliffs, the area is home to a surprising amount of wildlife and a premier outdoor recreation area for hiking, rock climbing, road and mountain biking, and horseback riding. Don't miss the 13-mile, one-way Scenic Drive, showcasing many area highlights, or the visitor center exhibits. One seasonal campground offers more than 70 individual campsites, walk-in campsites, RV campsites, and group campsites. Backcountry camping is also permitted above 5,000 feet.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for tent campers: Fifty-three individual standard sites offer space for ten people, and include picnic tables, grills, and campfire circles.
  • Best for RVs: There are six RV sites, but no hookups or dump stations.
  • Best for groups: Seven group camping areas offer space for up to 20 people.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Plan ahead for peak season and make a reservation as soon as you can. Reservations can be made at least 48 hours and up to six months in advance for regular campsites, and up to three days in advance for walk-in tent sites.
  2. If your plans are flexible, time your stay for during the week or during non-holiday periods. 
  3. If you don't have reservations, arrive first thing to grab any unreserved sites.

When to go

The area is open year-round though the campground is usually only open from Labor Day to Memorial Day. Summer temperatures can exceed 110°F while winter can see freezing temperatures and snow, making spring and fall the best times to visit. March, April, and November are the peak climbing and camping seasons. Timed entry reservations are required for the Scenic Drive between October and May. Fire restrictions are in place during fire season, typically May to October.

Know before you go

  • Timed entry reservations for the Scenic Drive are released one month and two days in advance. The Scenic Drive closes between 5 and 8pm, depending on the season. Climbers and backpackers can apply for late exit passes, which grant up to two extra hours.
  • Climbers should wait at least 24 hours after rainstorms before climbing on sandstone. Bivy permits are required if you need to stay overnight on climbing walls or summits.
  • Beware of flash floods after rainstorms. Visitors should also be on the lookout for rattlesnakes, black widows, and other poisonous creatures.
  • Water is provided at the campground but limited to one gallon per person per day. Firewood is not available.
  • When fire restrictions are in place, only gas and propane stoves are permitted.
  • Cell phone coverage can be spotty around the campground.
